Summer Longing

I was looking at pictures from last summer and I realized, I miss it. Yes, I love the fall and winter but .. I want summer to come back.
Last summer I went on a cross country trip to Iowa, Winscosin, Minnesota, ect and although I felt it was boring and depriving me of my summer, it wasn't. I miss it! I miss the little town my mom grew up in, I miss my grandparent's house; how we'd feed the squirrels and stay up till 6 in the morning. I miss my mom's cousin's town; it was so darling and sweet. I miss the never ending corn fields and the rain.

{All of these photos are mine}

I miss staring out the window for hours, watching everything I passed by.

I miss the little town my aunt lives in. I miss the farm I spent my rain-y fourth of july in.

I miss Mount Vernon, Iowa {my mom's hometown}. It was so cute and quaint. How beautiful it probably is in the fall!

I miss that little chipmunk that bite my finger. I miss my grandparent's home in Winscosin; we would feed the squirrels almost every day and eat delicious treats and at night make fires and make smores while squatting the bugs from our bare legs.

I miss riding my bike in their little neighborhood at seven in the morning with no sleep. I miss that one day when there was rain and thunder and lightning and how we rode our bikes for a couple yards and freaked out when a bolt of lightning riped the sky.

I miss walking to Gordys to rent movies or get doghnuts or poptarts.

I miss the lake ..

I now appriecate that vacation, it made me a different person and opened my eyes to the world.
I want to go back.
I want to live in that summer dream as I did before.

We're all a little bit afriad to speak our minds or say our opinions. We're always worried what people will think, or say.
But sometimes we have to put that fear aside and do it for the good of the world.


Fight with words not weapons; speak the truth instead of lies; be what you've always wanted to be; inspire others; be courageous; step out of yourself; treat all with equality; don't look down on anyone else; accept everyone; love yourself.


Good always overcomes bad.
